Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back | 2001 | R | - 7.5.10
This road picture is centered on the two recurring characters writer/director Kevin Smith created for his debut film "Clerks" and subsequently used as comic foils in his other films: When Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) learn that a movie is being made featuring their characters, they expect royalty checks to start rolling in. When they don't, the disparate duo decides to sabotage the film and thus make their way from New Jersey to Hollywood. They have several adventures along the way and end up in the Miramax lot, invading the sets of several movies, some real, some imaginary. Also with Shannen Doherty, Renée Humphrey, Ben Affleck, James Van Der Beek, Jason Biggs, Matt Damon, Joey Lauren Adams, Shannon Elizabeth, Eliza Dushku and Carrie Fisher. [1:40]

We see a man strapped to a table with his brain exposed and a monkey eats from it, and a group of humans are chased by apes on horseback (this is a daymare). On the set of a movie, a man is shot in the chest and flies against a wall with blood on his shirt; two men fight with light sabers and one has his costume hand cut off; and a man breaks down a wall, threatens a man and then punches him in the groin.

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
